Varsity Soccer Gals team awards!

Those “other” Lady Falcons (Catalina Foothills) may have blanked “our” LadyBirds, 3-0, then gone on to win their second consecutive State Championship; but that disappointment didn’t spoil “our” celebration of a great season! At Gallagher’s, Thursday evening, Feb. 17, Head Coach Jeff Vittorio presented letter certificates to his players, proudly announcing that their total 128 goals scored vs. only 20 goals against had broken the CSHS record by 35 goals!

You five seniors will, for sure, be missed; but Coach Vittorio is already rarin’ to go for next season! His rising senior co-captains will be Saige Williams (2010-2011 junior co-captain) and newly named Brenna Leech. Congratulations to all award winners, certainly to include Desert Sky Region Coach of the Year … Jeff Vittorio! 

And thanks to Kim (Mrs. Jay) Williams and her “Soccer Moms” crew who put on such a fitting and enjoyable conclusion to the 2010-2011 season.

… and don’t forget the 11-0 JVs!
